Joey Jordison’s Vimic have announced their first ever European tour – with the 16-date run taking place in March of next year.

The former Slipknot drummer is joined in the band by vocalist Kalen Chase, bassist Kyle Konkiel, keyboardist Matt Tarach and guitarist Jed Simon. Vimic was formed from the ashes of Jordison’s previous band Scar The Martyr.

Their 2017 European tour kicks off in Sweden on March 7 and includes three UK dates.

Vimic say: “Our European Excursion begins in March! #LetsDoThis”

This month, Vimic play their first ever live dates – with five US dates lined up.

As well as Vimic, Jordison has also launched another group, Sinsaenum. He recently told metal Hammer: “Oh, man, I’m happier and stronger than I’ve ever been.

“Everything that’s happened since I left Slipknot, all the stuff I’ve done with Vimic and Sinsaenum, all of my rehabilitation and everything I’ve been through to get back to doing what I love, it’s all been a godsend.

“I’m in a great place. If anyone needs proof that I’m back, two new bands and two albums should be enough.”
